Be the Fight Foundation


Be the fight for kids and their families
battling pediatric cancer


Not only do families need help during pediatric cancer treatment - they need support after treatment with the horrible lasting effects cancer leaves behind. We provide the support and help they need during these challenging times.

Everyone has a Heart of Gold whether you wear it on your sleeve or keep it out of sight. BFF for Kids would love for you to share your it with everyone at our Hearts of Gold Gala and other events throughout the year! 

BFF believes one of the hardest thing for a family to do after a pediatric cancer diagnosis is to ask for help. Parents lose jobs, bills pile up and siblings still need care. They need our care and support. Find out how you can help and get involved in supporting these amazing families.
